Critical Insights free pdf Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Sylvia Plath, (October 27, 1932-February 11, 1963), was talented from the very beginning of her life. She published her first poem at the age of eight in the children s section of the Boston Herald, and she said of her childhood: I want to work at putting together the complex mosaic of my childhood- to practice capturing feelings and experiences from the nebulous seething of memory and yank them out into black-and-white on the typewriter. 1 She also said that the sea was a central metaphor for her childhood.2 Despite clinical depression, which she suffered from her whole life, and a failed suicide attempt in 1953, Plath graduated from Smith College with highest honors in 1955, and was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to Newnham College, at Cambridge, England. At Smith College, Plath won all its major prizes in writing and scholarship. Yet it was in England where she wrote her poems that are considered today to be the most famous by an American female poet of the 20th Century, especially those in her 1965 collection Ariel [reprinted with a Forward by her daughter in Ariel: The Restored Edition (Harper Collins, 2004)]. In 1981, Plath s Collected Poems was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for poetry, the first American poet to win this prize after death. The purpose of this book is to introduce Sylvia Plath in high school and college classrooms. Such introductions are usually conventional: biography, summary of works, and the author s place in the history of American literature. This book provides such information. Yet, there is nothing conventional about Sylvia Plath. She is a unique, rare, rebellious and unexpected voice in American literature. She s a rebel woman in American literature: It is Adam s side/This earth I rise from, and I in agony/I cannot undo myself stepping from this skin/Of old bandages, boredoms, old faces (Ariel, 58-59).3"
